Cave bears, cult site, great views
All kinds of mysteries await you on this tour: The “Lieglloch” is a cave high above the Bad Mitterndorf valley at the foot of the Bergerwand, a cave where Stone Age relics and even the bones of cave bears have been found. It is presumed that this 15 m wide and 10 m deep cave once served as a refuge, a shelter for hunters and a site of cult worship. Today, the legendary “Lieglloch” is popular with visitors above all because of the great views of the mighty Grimming and of the world’s biggest natural ski jump, the “Kulm”.
easy hike, family-friendly
You will hike west from the mid-station of the quad chairlift and keep following the clearly marked, gently undulating pathway to the “Lieglloch”. Once there, you will be able to marvel at this cave at the foot of the Bergerwand and give free rein to your imagination with regard to everything that might have happened here back in Stone Age times. Afterwards, walk back the same way to the chairlift mid-station, where you have two options for your return home: Either hike down path 276 past the Hollam and Pfannerhütte to the village of Tauplitz – dropping a total of 460 vertical meters, you will need an additional 1 ½ hours – or simply hop on the lift and float down to the valley. Lean back and relax as magnificent mountain personalities glide past you on either side.
Instead of driving your car, why not simply leave your vehicle parked on the big parking lot in Tauplitz and make your own contribution to protecting the environment by riding the quad chairlift up the mountain.
